For the record, a great deal of this is complete bullshit. The rest is ancient history.

Yes, a tuna export business that I owned went belly up in 1999. The business existed for seven years and during that time sold in excess of $13 million dollars worth of fresh tuna in Japan annually. It's true that a small number of creditors did not get paid what they were owed. As is true in all bankruptcies. But the vast majority (several hundred) of my other suppliers were paid in full.

The failure of my business was investigated by the attorney generals of Massachusetts and several other states my company did business in. I have never been charged with any crime.

It's unfortunate that my business failed and a few hard working commercial fishermen did not get paid for fish they sold to my company. This is regrettable and continues to bother me to this day.

I've never had a drug problem during my life. The failure of my business was due to a number of factors that included embezzlement by two of my employees.

Not sure where the anti semitism and domestic violence allegations come from. I'm Jewish and I've never been married.

I recently got back into the Tuna business and things have been going quite well for me. Many former and new suppliers are supporting me now and are quite happy that I am back brokering their tuna.

Unfortunately, the dark period in my life, which continues today, is due to my girlfriend being recently diagnosed with inoperable and terminal brain cancer.

This malicious and largely factually incorrect post was obviously perpetrated by Kochman, who apparently is in a darker place than I am at the moment...

Dennis

If it bothers you that much, then do something about it.
It is never too late to make restitution. You said yourself that your business is doing well, so do the right thing. Maybe it will make you feel better, and most likely it will make those that you shafted feel better.....

maybe ALL of us should make restitution to those who got ripped off on our watch, if it applies.(and we know who we are) Put aside a certain percentage of our gross income.

Imho, it will release a harvest of blessings and good karma.

Holy cow. My apologies for even wondering if it was true - I can see now it really made no sense. I'm so sorry to hear about your girlfriend. Please forgive me for adding to the confusion and stress ...
